Description National Institute of Dramatic Arts

  • Established: 1958
  • Location: Kensington, South Wales, Australia
  • Number of students: 12,500
  • Language of instruction: English
  • Type: state.

The idea of creating an acting school belongs to the Australian Theater Fund. Through the efforts of AFT members, the first professional theater school was founded in Australia in 1958. The first graduation of 1959 was only 23 students, but today the National University of Theater Arts graduates about 3,000 people annually.

From the second year of work, additional ones began to be added to the main specialty: technical production, the study of theatrical crafts (costumes, sets), vocals, the art of dance, etc. In 1991, a magistracy was opened and teaching short-term courses began.

Among the most famous graduates of the university there are:

  • Cate blanchett
  • Alex russell
  • Lewis Fitz-Gerald
  • Mel Gibson
  • Harry greenwood
  • Jacqueline Mackenzie
  • Sarah Snook
  • John wood
  • Zindi Okeno
  • Fiona Cromby
  • Theodore Benton
  • Tommy Murphy et al.

Regularly, the educational institution, its current students and graduates, become winners of prestigious world prizes and awards:

  • Golden globe
  • Emmy Prime Award
  • BAFTA Awards et al.

The National University of Theater Arts has introduced a special educational system: in addition to basic loans, each student or group of students at the beginning of studying is entrusted with several projects that they must implement during their studies. It can be both full-fledged theatrical productions, and short films.
